About the property

The Manor is an ideal venue for family cerebrations, business retreats, weddings etc.

Quiet and secluded in its peaceful grounds, it is only a 5 minute walk to the town centre.

All rooms comprise modern facilities and en-suite bathrooms, tastefully decorated and refurbished to guarantee you a comfortable and cosy stay.

Beautiful Georgian Mansion built in 1800, this building of character has many of the original features and is a truly special place to stay.

Each room has a private bathroom, complimentary toiletries as well as Coffee/Tea making Facilities. (Hair dryers, irons & ironing boards available).

The outdoors comprise a large front lawn with an adjoining patio (accommodated with half a dozen tables and chairs), as well as a grand bandstand - perfect for weddings or entertaining in the warmer seasons.

For all special occasions, the beautiful mature gardens and grounds surrounding the property are perfect to have your photographs taken there.

The Manor is renowned in the area as being a home to the resident peacocks which are regularly seen wandering happily around the grounds - Within a dozen peacocks, you might get a chance to spot 'Harold' the stunning Albino peacock that has been reigning on the grounds for years.

At the back of the building is the courtyard with a closed off garden and grass picnic area surrounded by little cottage style rooms.

Being a great sun trap and sheltering from any wind, it enables you to enjoy outdoor meals or games all year round. With its small lanterns surrounding the garden, the courtyard is also ideal for relaxing evenings under the stars (as the sky is commonly very clear at night).

The dining room can accommodate up to 52 people.


The Terrace room is spectacular and a great space for large parties, a space to play games, host meetings, weddings etc.

The Terrace Room accommodates up to 100 seated guests.

This beautiful and airy room with large windows is illuminated with 3600 LED lights at night, and has a dance floor with a lighting system, a DJ area and its own bar.

It overlooks the garden and the bandstand, and has access to the grounds from the patio.


In addition to the large dinning room, the guests have access to the lounge, bar, and a commercial kitchen (enabling to cater for large groups with fryers/pizza ovens/large commercial fridge etc.)

The dining room is tastefully decorated in a Venetian Style, displaying some original handcrafted masks and Italian paintings. It comprises two fireplaces (one on each side of the room).

The guests can also enjoy their drinks in an inviting traditional Scottish bar, surrounded by frames of Scottish landscapes and wildlife, as well as family crest shields and an authentic 6 foot Suit of Armour.

Adjoining the bar is a cosy lounge with another fireplace and a grand piano, the ideal place to relax with a cup of tea in front of the fire sitting on one of the chesterfield sofas, looking out on the gardens.

A few board games are at your disposal there, or if you fancy a movie night you can use the Sony surround sound system and 50" TV set up.


7 of the bedrooms are in the main house and the other 8 are located in the courtyard (adjoined to the main house around the back).


Almost all the rooms are adjustable to tailor your needs - Double or twin rooms + a couple of family rooms (King+single).

Please let us know as soon as possible how many guests will be staying so we can set all the rooms up prior to your arrival.


Guests with pets must stay in one of the courtyard rooms as they are not allowed in the upstairs of main house.

Why Nicholas Lungley chose Blairgowrie and Rattray

This Georgian Manor was built in 1800. We kept many of the original features and its unique aspect makes it a building of character.

It is truly a special place to stay.

We also chose the Manor because of its location:

A two-minute drive, or five-minute walk, from the Manor and you will find yourself in the heart of Blairgowrie. A little town with picturesque narrow streets and a welcoming one-way system, Blairgowrie offers visitors plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. The river Ericht is abosolutly beatiful and runs through the town.

Blairgowrie is a charming little town with lots of character right in the heart of Scotland.

If you are coming from abroad, you will enjoy discovering the fascinating country that is Scotland with its rich history and its authentic culture.

There are plenty of local attractions drawing visitors from all over the world, such as Whisky Distilleries, numerous Castles, Lochs, wildlife and a beautiful rural landscape.

Some local events include golf competitions, Highland games, Bagpipe marches, Festivals etc.

(Google will have details for all local events happening in the area or you can visit the Tourist information in the town centre.)

The countryside surrounding the Manor and Blairgowrie has some of the most famous Golf courses in the world close at hand.

You will also be able to take part in a whole range of activities all year round:

Skiing, fishing, shooting, mountain biking, hiking (Blairgowrie being the main start point for the 60-mile circular Cateran Trail that walkers can follow around the historic drove roads used by cattle rustlers).

Or you can always try 4x4 off-road driving, quad bikes and even tank driving!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

To us it is an idyllic place, being in an authentic Scottish decor, we enjoy staying in cosy by the fireplace as much as exploring outdoors, surrounded by nature and the sound of the birds.

We are still amazed by the clear skies, making it a wonderful and enchanting place where you can gaze at the stars at night.

Great property for a party

  • 4 of 5

Nick and Cynthia were nice hosts. Cracking big old house which was perfect for a 40th birthday party. Catering was good. Only negative was we were told the PA sound system had to be turned off at midnight which i wasn't aware of until about 20 minutes before. The alternative sound system in the other areas of the house was unfortunately broken. Nick had told us about that before we arrived but it then left us with no music at the party apart from the little speakers we had brought along. We still had fun though!

Fabulouse house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at the Manor House for a business team retreat. Plenty of room for 15 people to have their own rooms although if going with friends then can accommodate lots more. There was also plenty of main reception/dining rooms to allow for breakout sessions. The hosts Nick and Cynthia were very welcoming and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Will certainly consider booking again for a business or leisure break.
